Cooper Contribution

GEORGE Cooper made his return to the pitch on Saturday when Argyle drew 1-1 with Swindon in Sky Bet League Two following a short amount of time off due to an injury sustained at Mansfield.

On his return, Coops assisted his team-mate Joel Grant in getting Argyle’s equaliser to Swindon’s first-half goal which put the Robins in the lead.

It was certainly a deserved leveller for the Pilgrims, who arguably could have won the game after a dominant final 30 minutes.

“We were on top of the game,” said Cooper. “For the last half an hour, I don’t think they got out of their half, maybe the odd counter-attack, but we just need to try and turn that point into three.

“It’s actually a good point, away at Swindon. I know I need to be getting assists and goals. I played in Joel and it was a good finish, we tried to go on and win the game but it wasn’t to be.”

George joined the Pilgrims on loan from Peterborough earlier in the season after a long time on the radar of Argyle manager Ryan Lowe.

“They’re a great group of lads and there’s great staff,” said Coops. “When I’ve been playing games the past few weeks, I feel like we are on top most of the time, we just need to turn a point into three.

“It’s five out of six unbeaten and if you can keep that going over the coming months you’re going to be up there. As long as we start winning our home games and picking up what we can away from home, we are going to be up there.”

There were 2,300 members of the Green Army that made the journey to Swindon on Saturday afternoon and, as always, they made their voice heard when they were getting behind the team.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” George said. “I’ve been playing professional football for five or six years now and I’ve never seen anything like the Argyle fans.

“They get behind us and they are the twelfth man. We have a few important games coming up and then we have to keep taking every game as it comes.”
